To kick the week off we're taking a look at what some of our past and present students have had to say about their experiences at the college. We have four stories from Sabina, Renee, Nadeem and Francesca. Check out the videos below.

Renee has been studying Travel & Tourism at the college and is currently doing her apprenticeship with London Borough of Hounslow, working within the Direct Payments team. Renee wants to eventually become a lawyer.



Nadeem studied various courses at the college before going onto do his degree, and now works as a Senior Systems IT Engineer at the college.



Francesca studied Beauty Therapy. Since studying at the college she has gone on to open her own salon, True Beauty Salon & Medi Spa, based in Twickenham. She has used the skills she learned on her course to gain experience in the industry and establish her award winning business.
